A beautiful and warming movie that speaks deeply to my love of food, how it can comfort and protect.

Movies of cooking in the background are my weakness.

I had no expectations about this, and was positively surprised. A feelgood self-discovery movie about cooking in the 1950's and blogging in the 2000's. Characters in different times use different ways to fill their lives with something they believe is meaningful. Had to get used to the Julia Child character, but gradually started to like her. Had the exactly the opposite with the Julie Powell character, she got less like-able every scene (I suspect this was intended). Really enjoyed this film and, more importantly, I developed a newfound love for butter!
